DESCRIPTION

A Southern Favorite! Excellent flavor. Small compact 12-18"H plant produces short-stemmed, short core, uniform solid oval heads of dark blue-green, cup-shaped leaves. The slightly crinkled heads average 10-12" in diameter and weigh 3-5 lbs. Does well in warmer climates. Slow to bolt. Good wrapping leaves for stuffing and fillings. Excellent choice for fresh markets and home gardens.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
